One wonders where news and approval ratings will be when Bernanke’s confirmation comes up for a vote….
I went on record with my Bernanke angst the day said he’d nominate Bernanke for a second term. At that time I qualified my opinion by saying that if Larry Summers was the other option, then I’d settle for BB. But I get the sense that Larry isn’t that popular now either, that Washington wants a clean break from Bernanke/Summers/Geithner.
So take a shot on a new Fed chair Mr. President. One who’s not afraid to challenge the banks, and run the occasional Fed fire drill.
